District 9 Wiki


I was able to find a list of all the cast members for District 9.

  • Sharlto Copley as Wikus van de Merwe, a worker at the MNU Department for Relations with Extraterrestrial Civilizations. District 9 was Copley's first professional role in a feature film. Actors like Eddie Murphy and Robin Williams influenced Copley's approach to character. Director Blomkamp was friends with Copley from his time in Johannesburg, and he was able to choose an unknown actor like Copley because he was not constrained by the demands of a large studio.
  • Jason Cope as Grey Bradnam, the UKNR Chief Correspondent. Cope also performed the role of Christopher Johnson and all the speaking aliens.
  • Eugene Khumbanyiwa as Obesandjo, a Nigerian warlord
  • David James as Colonel Koobus Venter, a sadistic soldier sent to capture Wikus. The film's main antagonist.
